AVAILABLE ADULT DOGS
This is a page where I list dogs we have produced or purchased which are over 8 weeks of age that are looking for homes.
These dogs may be from several situations.
They could be dogs we were hoping would be a part of our breeding program and for numerous possibilities did not quite end
up being what we had hoped for.
They may be puppies of ours that have come back from their owners for some reason and they are now looking for a new home.
They could be dogs we have used in our breeding program who are now retired and looking for their retirement home.
or they may be dogs who are looking for co-owners
Every dog on this page will be priced individually based on the reason they are for sale.
Chances are they will NOT be discounted to a lower price.
We occasionally have older pre-trained dogs for sale at additional costs. We have likely kept them back to decide between 2 puppies
in a litter which one to keep, we have put extra vaccinations into them, they are crate trained, leash trained, and have learned a wide
variety of commands from obedience, manners and tricks. We have taken these dogs with us for extra socializing leaving other dogs
home. Our time is not free so these pre-trained dogs are priced higher than typical dogs that we have not put so much individual time
and energy into.
If you have any questions about any of the dogs listed on this page please don't hesitate to contact us for more information.
PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL ME ASKING IF I HAVE ANYTHING AVAILABLE.
If or when ANYTHING comes available for sale I will post it the same day and update it regularly.
Seriously, why would I have a dog available for sale and not advertise it?
If I do not advertise it, it can not find a new home.
If it's not listed here I do not have it. You do not need to email me asking.
I promise no matter what day you are looking at this page. It is 100% up to date!
Guide lines for all dogs sold by Stoverly Aussies.
MUST BE RAW FED.
If you are not comfortable with raw feeding then I am not the breeder for you as all of my dogs are raw fed and are required to
stay that way. None of my dogs are allowed to be fed kibble. We transition all adults or rescues onto raw before they leave as well.
MUST BE MINIMALLY VACCINATED BASED ON TITRE LEVELS ONLY.
If you are one of those families who wants to vaccinate for everything just because a vet says so please move on, we test titres and
we ONLY vaccinate for what they need other than Rabies every three years by law. If you can not follow this, we are not interested in
placing any of our dogs with you. Sorry but too many dogs die from over vaccinating.
MUST NOT BE PUT ON FLEA/TICK/HEARTWORM POISONS.
They are poisons and our dogs are not to be put on them as preventatives. Period. If you have been brain washed by the media and vet's and think the poisons are less risk than the parasite please find another breeder to work with. I am not at all interested in my dogs being poisoned month after month for the pocket book of money biased companies. We use these products only to treat a known problem and never as a
preventative. We recommend doing blood work regularly to check for heart worm, lyme and anything else you may be concerned with
and treat only if and when you find something that needs to be treated.
Retired breeding dog, looking for her forever retirement home
Iq is a blue merle female and has been a fabulous part of our breeding program.
She has one more litter planned for spring/summer 2022 and then is ready to head to a retirement home.
IQ has brains for days, she is from my incredibly smart blood lines who LOVE to work. She does not care if she ever goes for an official run but she does need her brain worked regularly or she will get into mischief. She knows a bunch of tricks, we have worked her with the frisbee, she can do weave poles etc. She is amazing off leash and ignores those who are not her family. She is fine with other dogs but does not want to interact with them, she wants to interact with her humans more than anything, so if you are thinking of her to entertain another dog, that's not going to work, she only wants a relationship with her humans. She LOVES to go for long walks or off leash hikes, she stays right by your side and is not a wander off and explore kind of dog, nothing is as exciting and rewarding as her humans. She is house trained, crate trained, travels really well, gets along with all ages of people and all animals, dogs, cats livestock etc. She is very affectionate and will hang out and watch TV with us longer than most female dogs.
Now she is not perfect, she can be very manipulative, she lives in a busy home with a LOT of rules, I do not allow my dogs on my bed, they are not allowed on my furniture unless specifically invited up, and if I am not in the house watching them and interacting with them they are not loose, they are in a crate for my own sanity. She has gone on a trial and they just left her loose a lot and just let her do her own thing instead of interacting with her and she started to act out by peeing in the house, something she never does here. She is used to being with me and working, even if I'm just tossing small cookies while I am on the computer and rewarding her for going to a stool or mat, she just likes to be doing something to keep me happy. She has a carb fetish and will steal any bread product from the counter given half a second, this means any children carrying around food are a fair target to steal the food from their hands (gently) or if they put a cookie, cracker etc down she will take it if an adult is not watching. My dogs are used to having me in the same room as them monitoring what is happening and so they respect that and don't get into any trouble, my house is very much open concept so if I am on the main floor so are they, if I am in the basement so are they, and I can see everything they are doing and they are with me which is what keeps them on their best behaviour. They are used to rules and boundaries and that is what they do best with, if they don't have that and they are allowed to do what ever they want, then their personality changes. IQ sleeps in our room at night on the floor and with the door closed, the most she ever does is pace if we have not worked her enough during the day or if she has to potty, but again she is confined to our room behind a closed door.
She has the potential to be an incredible dog for someone who needs a partner and best friend and who has the time to interact with her and is not afraid to crate her when you can't be with her. There are days when I am out of the house for 6-8 hours and she is in a crate with no problem. So you can't be afraid to use the tools she is accustomed to.
If you may be interested and would like more information, please feel free to reach out. She can not leave until after her litter so we are in the interview stage right now.
As of Nov 11 2021 we are looking for serious partner families for several of our adult dogs.
You can see them below and on the girl's and boys pages. MUST live within about 2 hours driving distance and should be looking to do something with them for fun like Scent work, agility, tricks etc.
NOT FOR SALE.
NOT TO BE SPAYED/NEUTERED.
Partnerships only so I can continue to use them in my program but they get to live a spoiled pet lifestyle.
He is looking for a long term partnership. He is a PRA carrier so the girls I can use him on are few, but he is amazing quality and produces amazing quality puppies so we want to have access to him indefinitely. We are not looking for a cut off to use him, we want access to him for the rest of his life. He is house trained, crate trained, very sucky and lovable, gets along with all dogs, cats, farm animals. Great with kids. He is an excited barker and will bark in play or when it's time for food, getting in and out of the car etc. He is very vocal when he's happy and excited. Great off leash and no aussie reserve. We are hoping if life ever gets back to normal to show him in conformation shows in 2022, he is borderline for the height cut off but we would like to see how he does. We are happy to show him ourselves. He is not formally trained in any activity but he is smart, athletic and loves to run and play.
He is fully tested so he would be ready to go on a trial any time.
Contact us for details.
Marvel is a special girl and we want to put the word out just in case the perfect home is out there. We would like at least 1 more litter from her before we spay her, preferably 2 but I'm open to negotiations. She is very smart and very active. LOVES her family to pieces, is great with all humans, she is fine with kids but does not see how toddlers are any fun so just ignores them, she will play ball or frisbee until your arms fall off so kids of an age toss a ball and frisbee would be her favorite situation. House trained, crate trained, travels well, great off leash, knows a ton of tricks. NOT GREAT WITH OTHER DOGS.
I have to micromanage her. She plays and interacts with other dogs very aggressively and if they don't understand that type of play or they are very soft it turns into a fight. She gets along with all 4 of my boys no problem at all but to an outsider it looks and sounds like they are trying to kill each other, I have just gotten used to it and recognize it for what it is. We only have 2 or 3 girls I can trust her with or it ends up in a fight. She hates soft submissive dogs and will hunt them down just because she can sense they are soft, she does not like to be challenged so alpha personalities also do not do well with her. Because I know she has issues with other dogs she 100% needs a home where she is the only dog and there are no other dogs who will be visiting or brought in for any reason. She would be better in an out of town setting where she can run in a large yard or field and not have to worry about other dogs. Busy city life like Toronto where there are lots of dogs and only really dog parks for exercise is not suitable for her since she needs to avoid other dogs.
As an only dog she is about as easy and perfect as a dog can be, we can leave her loose when we go out without a crate and she's wonderful. She's obedient and very affectionate and she deserves to live her best life. So we are hoping she can find that very special home where she has no one to compete with and can still contribute to our breeding program for 1 more litter, maybe even 2 if we get lucky. The longer it takes to find her that perfect home the less I will need from her because I will use her while she is here.
If you may be interested please contact us.
GETTING CLOSE TO RETIREMENT
These dogs are looking to retire from breeding in a year or two so it's nice to put the word out now and start to get feelers for people who may be interested. Every dogs needs are unique and will not fit into every home so please read over them carefully before contacting us. They can all stay with me forever if the perfect home does not come along so we are not desperate for them to leave, we just want to put out feelers in case the perfect situation comes along.
Carbon will need a family who can come here several times to meet her and interact with her and gain her trust. She is very reserved with strangers and so we can not just toss her in a car and hope it works out, she will spook and if she gets loose will bolt and panic. Once she knows you and trusts you she is the most loyal animal you will ever have the pleasure of living with but she has to get to know you and so coming here to meet her and go for walks etc is not optional. She is great in the house, great off leash, she is good with cats and farm animals, very indifferent to other dogs, does not play with them but does not care that they are around. She has very limited exposure to small children so older children are preferred. She travels amazing in the car, I can easily forget she's with me when we travel, she just curls up and goes to sleep. House with a fenced yard required. No condo settings because she will just stress and bark at all the commotion from hallways. She is an alert barker so anyone who comes to the door will set her off barking.
HIGH energy, needs a lot of space to run and chase a ball and run and chase a frisbee and run some more. She is a very physically active girl who thrives on physical exercise and she will chase a toy for as long as you are willing to throw it. She is good with kids, specially if they are of an age to toss a ball and frisbee for an hour. She is rough so smaller kids may get knocked around accidentally when she goes for a toy and if she tugs small kids will get pulled down. So older kids are probably better for her. She is fine with cats and other dogs. She does not like to be challenged so more submissive dogs or males are best. She will play and interact with other dogs and tug on toys. She is good in the house but will pace out of boredom. She sleeps in the crate for that reason, we tried to have her loose at night and it drives me crazy to listen to her pace. She is settled in a crate. She travels in a crate otherwise she is all over the place and is a driving hazard. She is great off leash. She also needs a house with a yard and a family who loves to be outdoors all year long with daily access to a large area she can run full out, like bush trails, etc. She will need to meet her potential family a couple of times to make sure it is a good fit, so traveling to Midland is required.
